    Don't they own most of the Country and considered above the law. Be careful arresting goons close to the corrupt family.

    Hi guys, i think its time to stop joking and discriminating about people and their ethnic origins. if it is a crime anyone get a punishment by court of law. By the way, China is the only country stand 'closer' to Sri Lanka for anything and everything as a great friend, father, and sister.

    straight record Sunday, 24 February 2013 01:43 PM

    I don't see any nasty Americans stealing turtles and tortoises. If it moves, the accused will eat it!

    Thank you, Daily Mirror, for the daily jokes.

    GC Sunday, 24 February 2013 02:53 PM

    Can we get them to transport our politicians and 'patriots' to China?

    ranishq Sunday, 24 February 2013 12:00 AM

    my concern is that how is it possible for a Chinese to work as a shipping manager at ports authority? I thought these jobs are only for Sri Lankans via DM Android App
